Temple Farm Stables


Welcome to Temple Farm Stables

The Cochran family has farmed on Arniston Estate since 1872. We started the livery yard alongside the farming approximately 30 years ago. This year we invested in a major revamp.

See our facilities page for our new and improved training venue.

Cross country course opening 1st April 2021 for general bookings.

We also have a show jump grass arena for hire, mini xc course and our off road hacking.

Meet the team - Mike and Ginny Cochran

We have been married since 2004 and have a daughter- Georgina. Mike has farmed all of his life, primarily sheep (often checked his flock on a thoroughbred!) Nowadays he can be seen on his John Deere keeping our venue in tip top condition
Ginny has worked with horses for the last 30 years after training for BHS exams at the Dick Vet University of Edinburgh campus. She was brought up in South Africa and has lived and worked both in Africa and Belgium where she was Head girl and Instructor. She has worked in several different yards, teaching etc until coming to Temple in 1997.
